Title: “Aseptic and Precise Surgical Technique in Rodents”
Registration Closing date : January 17, 2013
Date: Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Time: 01:30 PM - 03:30 PM ET US
Aseptic and precise surgical techniques are essential components of a successful surgery. In spite of this, not all aspects of aseptic and delicate technique are often considered when planning for rodent surgery, thus leading to questionable outcomes. Implementation of these principles into a rodent surgical plan is especially challenging because there is still a misconception that rodents are less susceptible to infections and gentle technique requires appropriate training, equipment and instrumentation.
This webinar will cover:
• Current regulations related to rodent surgery
• Rodent aseptic practices
• Precise and gentle surgical technique
• Competency assessment of rodent aseptic technique
• Guidance to rodent surgeons to formulate informed decisions regarding aseptic, appropriate tissue handling and gentle technique to maximize good surgical outcomes, improve research data, and ensure animal welfare.
